The Quaternary Research Association offers £1k to support efforts that promote and foster engagement between Quaternary Science and a wide and diverse audience.

The QRA encourages its members and others to promote and foster engagement between Quaternary Science and a wide and diverse audience.

In support, they offer an annual Outreach fund from which grants will be awarded.

Awards are normally made of up to £1000, although larger requests will be considered.

Awards are open to individuals and organisations to organise public engagement events as well as develop and disseminate outreach materials on a Quaternary theme that:

Involve an aspect of Quaternary Science and fulfil one of the following criteria:

  • Increase public understanding of, and engagement with, Quaternary Science
  • Stimulate discussion about Quaternary Science and its implications for past, present and future society
  • Inspire and enthuse people of all ages about the Quaternary, especially those not previously aware of or interested in the subject.
  • Have clear aims and objectives with the potential to make an impact on the target audience. Projects that demonstrate imaginative ways of engaging new audiences are encouraged;
  • If applicable, consider a long term plan for the ‘project product’;
  • Have a structure in place to evaluate and review the success and impact of the project;
  • Have a structure in place for disseminating the outcomes of the project as widely as possible.

Note that they will not normally fund outreach projects associated with Research Council projects as it is expected these projects would normally include outreach funding.

Deadline for applications is 1 September.
